Shelly McGlinchey of the TNS Foundation team has organised a Walking Football Festival that is taking place prior to Saturday’s match against Prestatyn. Walking Football is a new session on the Foundation’s activity plan and is attracting a growing number of players every Monday afternoon from around Shropshire who are still enjoying the beautiful game. We expect that they will have a fantastic morning and hope to see a more and more people joining future sessions and festivals.
Representatives from The British Heart Foundation (BHF) are also attending the game and the players will be wearing t-shirts showing our support for the cause during a photo shoot prior to kick off. BHF will also be collecting donations around the Park Hall Stadium, so if you can spare any change it will be much appreciated.
We will also see the players and mascots in Show Racism The Red Card (SRTRC) t-shirts ahead of their fortnight of action. This is another cause that The New Saints have been involved with previously, holding education workshops for local school children along with demonstrations as seen today. We hope to keep working with SRTRC and keep raising awareness against racism in sport.
We hope you all enjoy the game and hope to see another positive result for The New Saints.
